. this is something economists and political science could study. in my view of congress basically is a big villain in many different issues. when congress spends money directly on r&d it doesn't do that great of a job. if you're spending money on r&d during wartime because it's inside lated from congress because it's patriotism but if you're working through an institutional structure such as n.i.h. where there is indirect accountability but not direct answering for individual grants and decisions this works quite well and what we need to do as social scientist is come up with more structures of this kind, things like the medicare payments advisory board but set it up in a way where it can work and we can actually preserve enough money in the system to be spending on longer term purposes. another issue i focus on to a considerable degree is demography. we need to think long-term. humankind has never in its history had societies which will be as old as the societies which we're getting now and which will become older with each year. the frightening truth is that we don't even actually know if this w
